If and when you’re interested in healing from Fibromyalgia (a.k.a. Fibro), you’ve come to the right place for answers. There are a lot of tips, tricks, information and services to help you here at the Health Matters Show and at Get Well Health.
Today we’re working on tip #2 in this Fibromyalgia Healing Series. (Find tip #1 from earlier this week if you missed it.)
Tip #2 is to channel positivity. Huh? Now, I’m not speaking of “channeling” like you hear some medium or mystic doing. No, I’m talking about you focusing on being positive. If you look at your situation as something that can be changed, should be changed and is capable of being changed, all you need is to do is change it. Simple? Complex? Now don’t stop…follow me here. There’s more to this idea below based on the writings of M. M. Ryan:
You know that when you want to change something, you must think positively about changing it. If you decide it can’t be changed…that you’re stuck with it, it ain’t gonna’ change!
This can be found in the logic of M. M. Ryan, author of AdaptAbility: How to Survive Change You Didn’t Ask For. She says:
The trick is to have what’s called a growth mindset. Ask: ‘What can I use from this to create success?’
I’m guessing that this article is about finding success in general, but let’s apply this principle to you and your desire to heal from Fibro. What can you do to change your mindset about your illness and, instead of doom and gloom, change it to one of ultimate success in healing? If you can find a way to do this, you will have what the author calls the “growth mindset.” You essentially will create your own sucess.
This concept applies to Fibromyalgia like it does any other topic of your life that you want to attain success. You must think it before you can do it. Will it be easy to change from feeling stuck to being more hopeful? Possibly not. If figuring out Fibro was super easy, you would have done it by now. But can you do it? Absolutely, YES.
Use the first tip (from earlier) and the second one in this list to get a better handle on how Fibromyalgia is manifesting in your life. Use them to move forward. Don’t sit idly by and assume that either you’re stuck suffering with the condition or that it “magically” will go away when you take your next pill.
You will be rewarded when you keep moving towards success.
You will find it by changing your actions and your what you believe.
PS- I love, love, love Dr. Andrew Weil and Martin L. Rossman’s Self Healing with Guided Imagery 2 CD set.
